With the frailties already been shown after three games by Blues, it is obvious this period of transition is very fragile.

The Brentford win was fortunate, Bristol City home was nervy and Forest away was simply a case of the wrong tactics and wrong team selection. Tracey Tyler an avid commenter hit the nail firmly on the head regarding the winger Lolley. Seddon should have played to counteract the obvious-a hiding for Pedersen. However, three games in and four fortunate points to build upon.

Clotet was always going to struggle with the new instructions issued by above and the abject failure not to replace a successor to Adams May well be to his cost. He is , in my opinion, blameless as I feel this likeable man is not in any position to stretch the extra mile and get what the club needs-a quality striker. Above all, we need leadership and character and a system of play that everybody understands, which appears totally missing at present.

Toughness and resilience appears to have gone and this is not necessarily down to Adams and Morrison but more of an overall assessment so far. We are just three games in so most would argue that these ‘are early days’ and yes they are but the seasoned supporters are not fooled by what they see.

It is easy to quickly spot the odd weakness that can be rectified but they can also detect an underlying red flag warning in the shape of general frailty and the need to toughen up. Tomorrow at home to Barnsley must produce a robust performance of dominance and the desire not to be bullied. With Brentford we got lucky, against Bristol City we competed only just and Forest simply took over without any need for a bit of bullying. Clotet needs to bury this Blues team weak underbelly very quickly. Supporters will accept most things but not this.
